Delhi-based S Har­sha Vard­hana’s works are re­plete with ab­stract signs. They have a syn­tax of their own through which they tra­verse time, space and form. In­flu­enced by tribal art, he paints in an old school ab­stract style. Though full of ge­o­met­ri­cal signs, es­pe­cially the in­verted tri­an­gle, his works have no in­her­ent sym­bol­ism of their own. Nei­ther are they ti­tled. The artist has left them open to the in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the au­di­ence. He pushes his view­ers to reach their own un­der­stand­ing of his works through a visual di­a­logue, rather than just un­der­stand­ing what they mean to him.
